Fed jolts the market, EURUSD tumbles down.

16-06-2022 08:18

“Fed latest announcement fails to exceed market expectations.”

Federal Reserve raised interest rates by 75 basis points on yesterday, a move last seen since November 1994. The announcement was made after US Consumer Price Index rose 8.6% for the year in May, well above market consensus. During press conference, Fed Chair Jerome Powell emphasized that they are facing challenging period ahead to control rising inflation. In view of that, he calls for faster pace of hiking borrowing costs, in hope to bring price pressures under control. However, Fed projected that US may experience slowing economy and unemployment may rise in the months to come.

ZFX Analyst’s Comment

We expect the pair to extend its weakness for the mid to long-term ahead as Fed’s policy continues to diverge from other major central banks. However, a confirmatory close below 0.6225 is required before entering the market.
